Water drop photography has always fascinated me.
So every once in a while I pull out my camera and try to make a splash.
Each time hoping to improve my set up and get a few different kinds of drops.
My first try was about 6 years ago.
All I had was a dripping kitchen faucet, some food coloring and my camera.
I was getting nice drops and crowns.
But that was all I was getting.
There is only so much you can do with a dripping faucet set up.
Plus we did got a new faucet so that was no longer an option.
Next I took a soda bottle added some plastic tubing and a brass valve to control the flow of the drops better.
I started using different liquids. Milk and coffee just to name a few. I also added external flashes and put colored gels over them.
At this point I still needed to learn a bit more about lighting.
My next set up was similar to the one above the only difference was instead of the soda bottle I used a IV drip. Ordered from an online vet supply store.
It did work well but the tube kept getting plugged up. The lighting is improving.
I decided to buy the “Splash Art Water Drop Kit”. I am still learning the system and what it can truly do. You can release 2 drops vary the timing between drops and the size of the drops. Below are a few images made with the kit.
The image below is called “Liquid Lady” Hard to believe it is a water drop!
Grab your camera and get shooting!
